Three days before the scheduled date the pressure test on the boiler in the Scottish biomass-fired plant in Speyside was successfully concluded.
Approximately 3,522 m² of heating surface and 6,306 welding seams provided evidence of their tightness at a boiler pressure of 169 bar on 28 July 2015. With that a further important milestone on the way to the completion of the plant has been reached.
In August 2014, following more than two years of project development and planning, Standardkessel received the delivery release for the biomass-fired power plant in Speyside. In 2016 the power plant operating on green wood (freshly cut wood) is to feed approx. 12.5 MW of electricity into the public grid and to export approx. 9 MW of process steam to supply the neighbouring Macallan Distillery.
